My guess is that your probably argueing as well yes? The question I have is...If he is not home where is he? I only ask this because my husband is a work aholic and is never home if he is he is upstairs in the recording studio. No family time and no me time. So this is what I did. I make sure I let him know that this is a problem for me!!! I don't really care if its not for him. And then I make sure I have someone to baby sit and make plans from there. Even if its just 1hr for dinner somewhere or ice cream just something. we come home kids are usually in bed and then its more alone time. You have to make the move first. Men only make the intitive for sex!!! Make sure you drive and that you do all the planning. Sometimes men like the women to be in controll of the (what they call) the little things. I hope this helps. I know with both your busy schedules that this is hard to do so if this plan is unplanable take a nice long bath together after the kids are alseep,do something sensual for eachother. Good luck

Hi S.-

My only advice to you is, make the time for you two to go out, once a week,it can be a walk, dinner, movie what not, you just have to make time for the two of you, if not, you get mad he is already mad and everyone wants to be alone, you need the time alone with one another...Like they say Having kids changes everything
